“Advances in Parallel Real-Time Cyber-Physical Systems”


New advances in parallel real-time scheduling theory and concurrency platforms are enabling a new generation of cyber-physical systems, which can support a combination of (1) significant computational demands, (2) stringent timing requirements, and (3) rapid adaptive changes in how resources are allocated at run-time.  This talk will describe a series of recent advances in parallel real-time systems research, including both theoretical and practical results, and how each of them impacts the specific domain of real-time hybrid simulation, a cyber-physical approach to high-fidelity testing at scale that is increasingly relevant for earthquake engineering and related fields.


Dr. Gill’s interests include real-time, embedded, and cyber-physical systems. His research has been published regularly in top-tier conferences and journals, with more than 80 peer-reviewed papers and articles in press over the past two decades. He was a co-PI in the development of the Cyber-physical Instrument for Real-time hybrid Structural Testing (CIRST) that is hosted at Purdue University, and was Washington University PI for the CyberMech project (collaborative with Purdue University) that extended the advances established in the CIRST project.  Dr. Gill has served as Program Chair and General Chair for the ICCPS, RTAS and RTSS conferences, as Treasurer of the IEEE Technical Committee on Real-Time Systems, and Vice Chair of ACM SIGBED.  Named a member of the IEEE Computer Society’s Golden Core in 2013, Dr. Gill is a senior member of both the IEEE and the ACM.
